inspectors from the u.n.'s nuclear watchdog toured the heavy water reactor at iraq. a sign that while there's plenty of scepticism some progress was already under way. robert, the president towed a careful line here. i thought his remarks were interesting. it seems like we're in the middle of what our good friend david axelrod likes to call kabuki theater, confident but not overconfident. i wonder about the deal back and forth between president obama and members of his own congress like bob menendez pushing this renewed sanctions deal. >> i do think you've got the potential collision of a lot of different time lines. the president, i think, is realistic to say there's a possibility of a deal but the deal can long move forward long-term if iranians are willing to do things. if he understands that from colliding time lines politically you've got congressional members from both parties pursuing sanctions. you've got israelis against this deal. i think the one important thing the president has in his pocket, so to speak, the american people are supportive of a deal because they are so incredibl

a point this violates a u.n. security treaty and empowers other countries to say we're going to strike an accord with you to allow you to continue your uranium enrichment. all that does is encourage other countries within the middle east to say we abided by this. but if you allow iran to do this, then why can't we do this? that's my concern. >> right. we didn't stop pakistan. we didn't stop north korea. so the idea that iran can be stopped if they want to make a nuclear weapon seems to not have a great historic president dent. >> you know, they have the know how. what will it take if they're going to pursue the bomb? it would take a sustained military campaign, not just a bombing campaign. a bombing campaign would set them back for a period of time. but if they were determined, it would have to be repeated bombing campaign and may include boots on the ground. because that is such an awful prospect, we need to see if there is a peaceful way to put an end to this program. that's why i think the interim deal makes sense. i share the skepticism that we can get to a final deal. >> the chanc

was a big part of it. at the same time the u.n. security council passed the first resolution in 1962, so it was a long walk to sanctions, not just a long walk to freedom. what is your take on why it took so long, given the overt racism in south africa to get to that point? >> well, as i just mentioned, why did it take us so long to get a voting bill passed under linden johnson? how could we a country of 200 or 300 years allowed slavery, jim crowe slavery to have persisted for so long? i think that's just another example of it that over time finally the morality and the ill morality of racism was able to be overcome. but it is not easy and i think many feelings are still there. you can see there is still a divide in our country. we still divide up red state, blue state. we have those fighting the civil war in many ways in their own minds, whether it's northern aggression or the interruption of a way of life in the south, et cetera. so i think it's a part of the human drama that we have to fight this evil of discrimination based on either race, ethnicity, religion, preference, any of the s
